Best Public Space

Public Gardens

The Victorian green space remains a gorgeous retreat within the city, from the magnificent wrought iron of the gate at Spring Garden and South Park to the geese, ducks and swans floating through the gentle waterways. Through the summer's warmer days it's a popular spot for wedding photos, though we know people who like to dress up in bear costumes and hang around, trying to get into those photos. Look out for a possible limited winter opening this year.
